The 2016 Jim Williamson Memorial World Open has taken place at the Northern Snooker Centre in Leeds and resulted in another win for Rob Hall to add to his ever expanding list of titles.
In the final he defeated a resurgent Devendra Joshi who had previously taken care of Martin Goodwill, Mike Russell and Roxton Chapman en route to the final.
The highest break was 379 by Mike Russell.
This was a level 3 world ranking tournament with £2000+ prize money and full ranking points.
Please note, the draw for this competition was based on the 2015/16 Ranking List, which affected the starting positions of 9 of the 22 top two seeds. This was done to ensure no player played any other player across the three events in Leeds starting this weekend. Players in the Timed World Championship event draw are closest to their ranking position on the 2015/16 Ranking List with minor adjustments made to ensure the different nations are separated in the groups. The 100up draw was made with as few minor adjustments to the Timed event draw as possible to ensure players were not in the same group as anyone in the Timed event. Finally, the Jim Williamson Memorial World Open draw was made with as few movements to the 100up draw as possible to ensure no player played any other in more than one event. We hope you understand the challenges presented by this process and accept that the choices we made were in the interests of all players in all competitions.
